Who Do You Want To Be in a Year?

Happy New Year! Instead of making resolutions about what you want to do this year, you might want to consider who you want to be. Shawna was called out over break on her habit of “name dropping.”

Ouch! In an honest conversation with God she discovered that she does that so others will think she’s significant. That’s not who she wants to be! What about you, who do you want to be in a year?

Then, Jerome was on his death bed when he asked the priest, “What works do I need to do to know that I’m right with God?” The priest answered with a mic drop question and Jerome gave a mic drop answer.

Next, have you ever read the Bible and thought, “What did I just read?” Dropping into the middle of the Bible can be as confusing as catching 1 minute in the middle of a movie. It’s really hard to know what’s going on when we don’t have any context.

Shawna’s reading through the whole Bible this year chronologically using The Bible Recap reading plan. Want to join her? Click here for the plan.

Last, Perry shares, “I used to be an enemy of God and now I’m his friend, and the thing that happened in between is that I have been crucified with Christ.”

Perry LaHaie

Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.


Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
